Dovenby WI June 2013
Seventeen members attended the June meeting. Secretary Carole Colquitt read the minutes of the May meeting which were then duly accepted. President Geraldine Baldwin then continued with a discussion of a letter received regarding the future of W. I. House in Carlisle and the different places suggested for its possible replacement.
Volunteers were then requested for the sewing of a panel for the Federation banner.
Guest speaker Margaret Suddart was then introduced, and gave a talk on memories. She talked about her own early childhood memories, and brought lots of memorabilia which she discovered when sorting her attic. This included old photographs as well as her own school tie, scarf and badge. Al this rekindled our own memories.
Geraldine Baldwin gave a vote of thanks for this very interesting and amusing talk.

The Quiz was won by Sheila Wilkinson with Pat Saunders in second place.
The Raffle was won by Sheila Wilkinson.
